MANILA, Philippines — Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, chief of the Philippine National Police, ordered on Saturday the Internal Affairs Service to expedite the summary dismissal proceedings against an antidrug police officer for possession of illegal drugs and firearms and kidnapping.

Eleazar identified the suspect as Patrolman Josen Niño Ramos, 28, an operative of the PNP Drug Enforcement Group.

He along with three cohorts — Conrad Hiro Liwanag, 29; Ryan Joshua Turla, 25; and Oliver Asentista, 31 — were arrested by members of the Quezon City Police District for kidnapping a Chinese national on Oct. 28.

They were reportedly criminology graduates and batchmates of Ramos. The Chinese victim, Chen De Jia, a 29-year-old student residing in Barangay Doña Imelda, told police the four abducted him, and he already paid a ransom of 450,000 yuan or P3.563 million for his release.
